Insta Inspo

Instagram has always been my #1 and I basically get giddy every time they roll out a new feature. Maybe it’s because social media marketing is my career, but I just love watching how Instagram evolves their platform and design.

Naturally, when Instagram rolled out their new collections feature, I couldn’t wait to learn more about it and how it would enrich my usage. In a short amount of time, this new addition has quickly become one of my favorite features of the social network—read on to find out why.

There was a period of time in which Pinterest was my most-frequented web destination. I found endless inspiration from the site and took great pride in curating my boards. While I still do turn to Pinterest for inspiration, particularly as it pertains to interior design, I’ve found Instagram’s collections feature to fill a lot of the same needs that Pinterest once did. I’m constantly stumbling upon beautiful photos as I scroll through my Instagram feed and at one point, I even had an album on my camera roll for all of my Instagram screenshots.

Now, however, there’s no need to screenshot because I can simply save beautiful images right within Instagram. After a few weeks of saving photos, I started to notice patterns amidst the content, and that’s how I landed on the following collection boards:

  • Recipes
  • Interiors
  • San Francisco
  • Outfits
  • LA
  • Weekends
  • Tropical Vacations

I absolutely love that when I’m at the market, I can quickly open my Instagram app and navigate straight to my “recipes” board for some ideas. Similarly, when I’m staring at the contents of my closet and not seeing anything I like, I can open the “outfits” board for some much-needed inspiration.

Have you been using the collections feature? Let me know how you’re liking it below!
